Continuing our discusion. The issues are as follows:
When I first plug in the system, it clicks with an audible "click-clunk". Then, when I go to cycle the power on, the system will click but the power relay won't latch. I've tried the power-enter button to reset, but doesn't do anything to resolve it. Finally, if I cycle the power button erratically, then sometimes it will latch... sometimes it goes into this endless cycle of clicking about every second... click.... click.....click.....click.....click.
I now have the schematics for the receiver, but where should I begin? Seems to me, it is in the power board (with the transistior,cap and latching relay... but I could be completely wrong.

The unit is most likely in protect mode. This means that the output section has a problem and the protection circuitry is preventing it from being turned on. This is to prevent further damage. The typical defective parts are the output transistors. Figure on $20-$40 for parts plus the local labor rate for repair.
I bought my AV-DV75 from Best Buy about 10 years ago and it still works. However it did stop working a while back. I don't know why. I alsmost threw it away. But I unplugged it for a couple of days, then plugged it back up and it came back on. It is still working. Maybe that will work for you.
my center speaker quit working recently. If you decide to sell your AIWA speakers will you please email me?
Hello Coach T,
1. If pressing the power button does not turn the unit off, unplug the unit, then plug it back in.
2. Press the power button while pressing the ENTER button.
This will bring the unit back to factory defaults.
Please let us know if you need any additional help.
I've had this happen a number of times with my receiver. This trick from the Troubleshooting guide in the owner's manual usually does the trick:
If an unusual condition in the display window or malfunction
occurs, reset the unit as follows.
1 Press the POWER button to turn off the power.
2 Press the POWER button while pressing the ENTER button.
Everything stored in memory after purchase is canceled.
If the power cannot be turned off in step 1 because of a
malfunction, reset by disconnecting the AC cord and carry out
There could be a number of reasons causing this malfunction, try replacing the subwoofer's cord, it might be damaged, you can also try reseting the system to the factory settings according to the following instructions:
1. Press the power button to turn off the power
2. Press the power button while pressing the ENTER button. (note: this will reset all memory)
